Recovery, Brown Rice Tea and Lucky Star Figmas


Brown Rice Tea with Tsuruya~

Caught the seasonal flu over the weekend. Still recovering now but I feel much better. The first day was horrible. I think that was the first time I ever had the flu (not counting stomach flu). I’ll spare you the details though. Anyway, I was told by the doctor to drink lots of fluids so I am now drinking obscene amounts of Gatorade and Japanese Brown Rice Tea <3

DannyChoo.Com Giveaway

Found out today that I won the Giveaway contest! Was sick over the weekend so I only found out this morning ^^’ (and still sick)

I was really surprised because I couldn’t find all the prices of the food even if I searched through the restaurant pages of I guess I didn’t find them all XD

This was the second one I participated in and I didn’t expect to win. Really happy though ^_^ The first round was guessing how many of Danny’s machines were running OS X. I searched for all the pictures were Mac related and added the Dell mini.

Second round was funny. I just got back from a grueling exam and my head was mushy so even if I found the prices of each of the items through Hobby Link Japan, I still got it wrong. One was because Danny didn’t have to pay for them, and even if he did, I thought one of the items were two separate items >.> But we all got a second chance so yay! ^_^

Final round was guessing how much he spent in Ikea. Found all the furniture and even the bulbs, which were tough to find. However, what was even tougher to find was the food. Found some of the prices in the restaurant section of the but not all. I think I found the cookies that were in the picture with the car but wasn’t sure. Either way, I added it since I couldn’t find the prices of the other food.

Will be posting about the Nendoroid and the calendar when they arrive. Thanks again to Danny Choo and Hobby Link Japan!

First Impressions: K-On!

K-On! Group Shot

K-On! Cast

Note: Currently working on a paper, re-watching the first episode of K-On, drinking brown rice tea and helping (and failing) mom use the call function on Yahoo Messenger… so pardon the messy post.

I was browsing through when I stumbled upon his article about K-On!. I only read up to the second image because I couldn’t wait to watch it. I finished the first episode yesterday and already I’m hooked.

Joined Twitter

Been avoiding joining Twitter ever since I joined Plurk. There are some people who think they are the same thing, some people who don’t care, and some people who are personally insulted if they are compared.

Anyway, I haven’t Plurked in a long time and only joined Twitter for school purposes, to track a project’s progress. But now I added my classmates so we’ll see how long I will continue Twitt…ing?

Robbie, MGO and Nerd Fellowship

It’s been a long time since my last post. I haven’t read most of the post on blogs in my Google Reader/Blogroll. School work’s been taking up most of my time and when I finally got a week-long break last week, my body decided to crash and I spent most of it at home with a cough and a slight fever.


Anyway, before the break started, I was invited to write at Nerd Fellowship. I decided to give it a try and wrote my first post on the new video/trailer for the upcoming Metal Gear Solid Scene Expansion. I can’t wait for the new maps and gear! Hopefully the outfit near the end does have the same effect as the Magazine. Haha! I bet it’s just for fun though.

Obviously, that was my favorite part of the vid. Adding to that is the Robbie mascot head. It took me a few seconds to realize why the bunny head looked familiar. I suppose it’s a Konami thing. Hehe! Here’s hoping for more cameos/references!

This is one of the first figures on my get list. However, it was out of stock everywhere when I decided to start collecting figures. I was really glad when it was announced that it will be available sometime near the end of this year. I ordered it from KidNemo and it arrived on December 19. Here’s my review.
